Setting how drawings are opened
If you regularly open drawings that contain errors or damaged data, for example,
if you are a new progeCAD user and your original drawings were created using
different CAD software, you can enable Open Drawings using Recover. This option
automatically checks all drawings for errors when using the Open command, and
attempts recovery, as needed. Viewing warning messages when opening drawings
allows you to know which files are being fixed by progeCAD and what errors
have occurred; however, you can also choose to hide the warnings.
To set how drawings are opened
- Do one of the following:
Click the General tab.
Mark Open Drawings using Recover to use the Recover command automatically
each time you use the Open command.
Mark Hide Warnings when Opening Drawings using Recover to hide warnings
if errors are found in a drawing while opening it. Errors will still be logged
in an ASCII file with an .adt extension.
- Choose Tools > Options.
- Type config and then press Enter.
